ONE YEAR! I just passed the One Year Mark in the new house... new house... new life...


divorce... yes... finally divorce
it has not yet been a year
still going through all sorts of adjustments

things were good... then things declined
it is my feeling that marriage has an expiration date
we definitely hit ours
we were unhappily married for a handful of years after we were no longer happily married

so it goes...
first time going through this life thing
was not sure how to play it
tough patch... guess not



we had some good times... then we had some bad
things were broke
we did not know how to fix them
then... things got broke beyond repair


happy wife... happy life
I did not have a happy wife
I did not have a happy wife
things are better now


we tried...
but then it was done
no more happiness
no more fun

much happier now
having much more fun

hope my ex appreciates this next chapter as much as I do

guns... gun violence... I am not a fan

Karl Sellers
a GoFundMe page to help with funeral costs
https://www.gofundme.com/

not my photo
not even my friend
a friend to many of my friends
and really
I feel we are all brothers on the bike

I know the face... I was in the same room at the same time as Karl Sellers
but I never knew him
for that... I am sad

Karl Sellers died earlier this week
the details are unknown to me
I know nothing more than the fact that he was a victim of gun violence
and that he will be missed by many

RIP Karl Sellers
Ride In Peace
join those that passed before you
blaze the trail for those that arrive after you

may the friends of family of Karl one day find peace in their loss
his death was was too soon
Karl had so much he wanted to share with the world
although I did not know Karl... I am still saddened by his death... his senseless death

Respect Life
Respect Each Other

Love and Luck to all who knew and cared for Karl Sellers

Katie Compton at DCCX.. Katie is Sublime.

Trek's Katie Compton

Katie Compton on Twitter


In the Crosshairs: Katie Compton


DCCX has come and gone...
racers are focusing less on the races past and more on races appraoching
Cyclocross is not like marathon running
a person does not train for one event
but rather they train for a season
maybe hoping to peak at one event




once again Mother Nature blessed DC with glorious weather
there was a little rain days prior
but this worked to the advantage of the course
Saturday was cool and breezey
Sunday was warmer with less wind and more dust


me... I did not race
but instead
I ran the Lil Belgians event and took photos while cheering on racers


very exciting to watch Katie Compton Race

Katie is totally Pro!

she is a dialed in machine
hard for a person to be a perfect athlete
but her skill, strength, technical handling, comfort and confidence all executed with a touch of class
poetry in motion



Katie has class on the bike and off the bike...
Katie's ability to deal with the never ending line of approaching fans
this photo of Katie signing her race number just after finishing and winning the Woman's UCI event on Day Two... well.. not a photo op... just Katie being Katie




it was a great day for cyclocross
great day for spectators and racers alike
racers of all levels were treated to cyclocross at its best
sure it was more dusty than muddy
well... you get what you get
you race the course that is under your tires



lots of shots of Katie on the course

enough on this... time to get back to work
just thought I should share these images before they get lost in the digital shuffle


nothing to see here



F--- Yeah Katie Compton

what issues are important to you? rights for pedestrians and cyclists? do you think that a Trump Presidency will care about people on foot or on bikes?



what issues are important to you?

mother earth and climate change?

come on... Republicans as a whole are more for big business than the future of our planet
there is some weird notion that Climate Change is not real...really?
and well... Trump is beyond the worse on this issue
as he is big business

equality?
equality for minorities\women\LGBT?
forget that... 
not in a Trump world!

if Trump wins...
Obama may not only be the first black US president
Obama will be the last black US president

GET OUT AND VOTE!
YOUR VOTE COUNTS!
YOUR VOTE MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

PLEASE VOTE
(unless you want to vote for Trump)

dag nabbit! someone stole the Knog style lights off my bike yesterday...

suckers,..

sorry that your life sucks so much that you have to steal my stuff

so a guy in a Members Only jacket yelled to me to get my bike off the street...

sorry...

I do not take life advice from people in Members Only jackets
